I believe that the holidays in the U.S. should be established to give a certain value to Martin Luther King's holiday in January for national prestige in February. Ash Wednesday is not a holiday which fine with me, but it would be nice to pay workers time and a half on that day rather than those long weekends.

You live in Canada, why do you care what holidays are observed here?

What does that sentence mean (in English, that is)? You want to give a certain value to Martin Luther King Day in February? What is a 'certain value'? You want some kind of new national holiday in that month?
